Mitochondrial Genomes Reveal Peopling of Pamirs[Dec 11, 2017]

To find out the settlement history in the Pamirs, an international research team led by Prof. ZHANG Yaping from Kunming Institute of Zoology of Chinese Academy of Sciences used next-generation sequencing to analyze the mitochondrial DNA genomes of 382 individuals from eight populations inhabiting the Pamirs and the surrounding lowlands in Central Asia.

Instabilities of Jammed Packings of Spheres Under Load Affect Density of Vibrational States and Distribution of Energy Barriers[Nov 30, 2017]

In a study published in Physical Review Letters, XU Ning at University of Science and Technology of China and collaborators studied the new properties of glass modeled by a jammed packing of sphere when it approaches an instability, and found that instabilities contribute to both the density of vibrational states and the distribution of energy barriers, which lead to a refined understanding of marginal stability in jammed packings.
